Prepare Early for Mosquito Season: Effective Control Tips for Phoenix Residents

It’s not summer yet, but mosquitoes are starting to make their big comeback for the season. There are things you can do now to start preparing for the onslaught. Those humid, warm, and sticky days of summer are not far off, so take some time this spring to plan on how you will prevent those pests from ruining your backyard barbecue or pool party.

Not only do they bite, they spread diseases such as West Nile, Zika, yellow fever, dengue fever, and malaria.

Regular mosquito treatment is the best way to control the mosquito population in and around your yard. Your trusted mosquito exterminator in Phoenix AZ would be happy to provide seasonal treatment, but in the meantime, here’s how to educate yourself on mosquito pest control.

Signs of a Mosquito Infestation

Check out these tell-tale signs that you’ve got a mosquito infestation on your hands:

  • Constant buzzing sound: Mosquitoes, like other flying insects, produce an annoying high-pitched buzzing noise.
  • Standing water: Female mosquitoes like to lay their eggs in standing water, where they can lay up to hundreds at a time.
  • Hovering over food: Male mosquitoes love nectar and sweets, which is why you often see them buzzing over fruits or other sweets.
  • Shady areas: Mosquitoes prefer shady or dim areas, like in or near woods.
  • Humidity: Moisture attracts mosquitoes, and the air is filled with moisture when it’s humid out.
  • Bites: Usually it’s the females that bite, not the males, as they need blood in order to produce eggs.

Causes and Prevention of Mosquitoes

From standing water to sweets, here are some things that are attracting mosquitoes to your Phoenix yard. Eliminate these sources and you can better control the mosquito population.

  • Clean up debris: Trim your trees for less shade in your yard, and be sure to remove areas of standing water (think: kiddie pools, yard toys, and overturned garbage can lids).
  • Light candles: When enjoying the outdoors at night, leave candles or lanterns on your patio, but choose ones with essential oils that are known to repel these insects, such as: Lemongrass, Rosemary, Citronella, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Clove, Cedarwood, Geraniol, Peppermint.
  • Spray personal repellents: When spending time in the yard, spray bug repellent all over your body, paired with wearing long pants and long sleeves.
  • Sprinkle coffee grounds: Sprinkle some coffee grounds where you see standing water, to prevent mosquito larvae from growing.
